Happy Sunday Harrington Families

Happy Sunday!! I hope everyone has had a wonderful weekend. They weather has been nice, it feels like Spring is in the air. A big thank you to the HPTO for putting on such an amazing event last night with the Special Person's Dance! By all accounts is was a huge success. It was so wonderful to see everyone dressed up and dancing and taking pictures. Last night's event was just another example of all the hard work the HPTO put in for out community, and we have a few more to go over the next couple months, be on the lookout and as always help them out and volunteer to help support one of the upcoming events.


Please remember that if you are changing the way in which your student will be dismissed on a particular day please send in a note with your student, or call the main office. Teachers will follow the consistent plans of that day unless there is notification from a parent/guardian to them directly. Students can be confused on dismissal plans which causes extensive confusion and a delay in the dismissal process. Again, please send in a note or call the office if you change the way your student will be getting home on any particular day.

Thank you for your continued support of Harrington. We are an inclusive community, a special community, a community that will continue to support each other.

Please ensure that you are receiving all communications from the school and that your contact information is up to date. If at any time you have changed your contact information, please let the school know so we can update our systems.

As always, thank you for your continued support of our Harrington community. Please reach out to me or Karen with any questions or concerns as always.

Once again, remember to…"Push through your day, Smile, Be Happy, Stay Positive!"

Be safe! Stay well!
